Classic Car Blocks
Well, it's summer and the car & truck show scene is in full swing. For August, there are National shows in Spokane, WA; Pleasanton, CA; Louisville, KY; Carlisle, PA; Brainerd, MN . . . to name a few.
It's not often that we see a classic car quilt block. For auto enthusiasts, I've linked some cute and challenging blocks, seen on various blogs - please see below:
